Immersion is one of the primary companies behind force feedback and haptics. They’re working with a peripheral maker called dreamGEAR to put out a wireless Dual Shock alternative called the Shadow. It will feature “advanced vibro-tactile, spinning-mass technologies,” which is about as real-sounding as Master of Orion 2’s “black hole generator”* — although, come to think of it, we have one of those things now. Anyhow, this Shadow controller will probably feature better force feedback and they say it has a better analog stick, but we’ll see.
